Director Will Gluck is adding another potential project to his growing development pile. Gluck most recently helmed the better-than-they-ought-to-be Easy A and Friends with Benefits and is currently prepping to start filming the Annie remake later this year with Best Actress nominee and Beasts of the Southern Wild star Quvenzhane Wallis set as the lead. Though Annie is next on his docket, Gluck hasn’t stopped searching for other future projects as he has just attached himself to direct the action-adventure film Agatha for Paramount Pictures.
Written on spec by Allison Schroeder, Agatha envisions what happened to mystery author Agatha Christie during the 11 days she went missing in December of 1926. Plot details are unknown at this time, but the film’s tone is described as “a female Sherlock Holmes meets Romancing the Stone.” Hit the jump for more on the source incident, Christie’s mysterious disappearance.
